I'd like to begin my review by reinforcing what christophutaipe said about Red Coconut (RC). RC reservation was stressful. RC Management retracted on the offer we agreed upon, a book-and-buy scheme we made during the Travel Expo in Manila (Aug 2010). RC initially agreed to give us two deluxe rooms for the price of the "Family Room," but later retracted this and down-graded our accomodation back to the Family Room. They even insisted that we take the Superior Room which is priced lower than the Family Room; we vehemently disagreed on this. We finally settled with the Family Room just before we hit Boracay.
But that's the last of our worries. On the hotel itself and their service::
Land-sea-transpo we availed was well executed
Buffet breakfast was better than expected
The swimming pool was clean as well!
Staff was very accomodating
Security is posted on the entrance at night
Location is great
Ameneties at the beach is good with hotel staff assigned at all times
Back-up generator is up and running in 5minutes or less during power failure
Wifi Internet is, however, not free for use.
It's worth mentioning that they have free use of fresh towels at the beach as well.
The Family Room:
We were impressed with their Family Room. They only have one room of this type (Room 310) in their building fronting the beach, and we got to stay in it. It is laid-out with three rooms with the master's bed room at the first floor, and the other two rooms on the 2nd floor. Yes, there is a stair-case in the small family room that led to the 2nd floor. Their is only one Bathroom on the first floor. There are four A/C units in each room as well. Bed was also better than all the rest - actually, could pass as 1st class bed.
